Episode 305: San Diego Comic Con International 2011
Last weekend saw Comic Con International hit San Diego, and it had everything you would expect, from cosplay superheroes to big name celebrities to the Star Wars Action News team covering all the great Star Wars collecting from the convention, from the exclusives from Kotobukiya, Gentle Giant, and Hasbro to the Star Wars collectibles panel featuring Sideshow, eFX, and more! In this episode of Star Wars Action News, Arnie and Marjorie recount all the Star Wars moments from the con, from the great new products on display to the not-so-great handling of the line at the Hasbro Toy Shop booth. Also Justin joins in to run down the new toys revealed by Hasbro, and Jakob reviews new Star Wars 6-inch figure prototypes from ThreeA. Also on this episode, we interview representatives from Star Wars collectible companies Uncle Milton, Kotobukiya, and Gentle Giant, all talking about their new product reveals at the con, and Star Wars author Timothy Zahn talks to Arnie about his new novel Choices of One as well as looking back at his first Star Wars novel Heir to the Empire 20 years later. All this, plus more, on this SDCC episode of Star Wars Action News!
